With the new requirement for healthcare workers to become vaccinated by September 17, right now 75% of the stat’s hospital workers are fully vaccinated and 68% of nursing home workers are fully vaccinated.
On a local level, 15-25% of hospital employees weren’t vaccinated the first week of August.
Hospital workers worry as the cases continue to increase.
The mandate may have a negative effect, resulting in the loss of workers that do not want to become vaccinated.
